John Bowring writes to William Lloyd Garrison after receiving "intelligence of our transatlantic friends through Mr. [John Anderson] Collins ..." He warns that "so many appeals have lately been made to the public" that Collins' mission may not be successful. He also predicts that the "rumours [sic] of wars" and the "woman's question" will "be a stumbling block in the way of Mr. Collins." Bowring then refers to the rejection of American women delegates from the World Anti-Slavery Conference, saying the women, "made a deep, if not a wide impression." He believes "the experiment was well worth making. It honored America, it will instruct England. If in some matters of high civilization you are behind, in this matter of courageous benevolence how far are you before us!"
